Casa Elia is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy Palermo from a really local perspective but still feeling at home in a wide, clean, modern, silent welcoming apartment. Vera is great and she has plenty of tips if you are new in this city. Also, the area is really quite at night and lively during the day, thanks to the close traditional market "al Capo". The cathedral, palazzo dei normanni and quattro canti are all at a walking distance. We could not expect anything better and hope to come back again.

Vera's apartment looks beautiful in photos but it does not do the apartment justice. The apartment is absolutely huge, beautifully decorated and has everything you could ever need. We felt incredibly lucky to be staying here and wish we could have stayed longer. I cannot stress how highly I recommend Vera's apartment. She has included very thoughtful details, helped us check-in with ease and supplied many, many thoughtful suggestions for how to sworn our time and places to eat. She was extremely helpful throughout our stay and even booked our taxi to the airport for us. The apartment is very well centrally located, close to markets, restaurants and places of interest. I will be personally recommending this apartment to family and friends and highly recommend to everyone else. Thanks so much Vera!

I cannot recommend this property enough. The location is central with all the sites, public transport and restaurants/bars all in close proximity. The apartment is beautiful and looks even bigger than the images suggest. The highlight of the stay however was Vera who - although we never met - was incredibly helpful, arranging transportation from the airport, an easy check in and check out and amazing recommendations for restaurants, bars, sites, etc. Which made our trip.

Vera was a great host! She helped us to book a cab i advance at the AirPort that drived us to the apartment. We had good communication. You could really feel she put in some extra effort so you should feel as home as possible. Really recommend every one to stay here!

We had a wonderful stay in Palermo - thank you Vera! The flat was clean and spacious, with a lovely balcony too. Vera arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and also had lots of suggestions on places to eat and things to do. The flat is just next to Capo market and a short walk to the port. Our favourite suggestion was La Galleria - this was by far the best restaurant we went to during our stay. A wonderful recommendation! Our only (very minor!) comment is that we didn't realise that air con would be an extra cost, although it wasn't much at all - it's just to prevent people leaving it on all day when you're out and about. Otherwise 5 stars! Thanks again for a lovely week.

Thank you Imogen. It was my pleasure to host you. I just wanted to make sure that you realize that 'A/C extra cost' was /is written in the House Rules, and it's printed on the Booking confirmation sheet..I wouldn't dream of asking for something which wasn't clear enough from the very beginning. Sorry about that misunderstanding. And yes, as I mention it to you, the cost is minimum, only to avoid an extreme waste and use it conscientiously as you did. Thank you ️️️You are always more than welcome️️️

Huge and beautifully designed luxury apartment exceptionally well appointed and comfortable. Vera was a welcoming and generous host. The photographs do not do justice to the size or elegance of the apartment. The apartment overlooks a residential compound which the neighbours use as their recreational and outdoor living area. There is a supermarket and a food market on the doorstep. The old city is a bit grittier than the new city (north of Teatro Maximo) but it is also closer to some of the main tourist sites and street markets.

The apartment in Vera is faithful to the description, really spacious, well decorated, very clean and the terrace is very nice. Vera was a hospitable host, communication has always been smooth and easy. All of the recommendations she made were a delight (special mention for the Galleria and the Frida Pizza!) And she was a great help (especially to park the car) and as soon as we needed some thing (she even book a restaurant for us!). In addition, the area of the apartment is really well located: very close to the center but quiet, everything can be done on foot and it is very nice. In late June, even with the 35 °, we did not need air conditioning as the apartment is well insulated. We highly recommend this apartment to discover Palerme!
